CCI quick changer tip

I don't always have the worlds biggest Allen key handy to take off my CCI quick changer, the other day i improvised:



Two Allen keys work perfectly, they fill the corners enough to twist it off no problem!

You can also wrap the piercing portion of the changer in tape or rubber and spin it off by hand. (at least its always worked for me) Make sure to slather some hummus on the threads and o-ring after to prevent galling.

Is that the one you need a 3/8" allen key for? If so, you can use the head of a burst disc as well if you have a tank handy (which most paintballers do).

This is one reason why I keep a strap wrench in my tool kit. They're perfect for getting stuck parts removed without leaving idiot marks.

I bought a small Torx set for a 3/8" ratchet drive, originally for working on vehicles. The largest bit in the set is a perfect fit.

I've sliced up a cheap strap wrench on these before. Probably after trying to seal a 12g when the seal was lost.

Neet trick good to know in a pinch. I keep one of these in my gear bag for tricky regs. Works great for changing the CCI Tips out. SSC makes them cheap. It's a great paintball related specialty tool.

I don't remember who first posted the tip but an old piece of strap wrench inside a worm drive hose clamp works wonders. You tighten down the hose clamp and then you can use the wrench of your choice without damaging the reg/ bucket changer.

I also keep old rubber strap wrench pieces for use with my Craftsman Robo Grip. It's the same concept as the you mentioned and it's perfect for stuck parts that would snap a cheaper strap wrench.
